The Horizon Europe project PULSAR is stepping up to defend sustainable aviation!

First general assembly in Amsterdam

The consortium of the Horizon Europe PULSAR project (Propelling eUropean Leadership through Synergizing Aviation Research) met in Amsterdam from 6 to 8 June at the Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR) for the project’s annual general assembly. 6 months after the launch of the project, the goal was to give an overview of the first actions’ progress and to start a new phase of operational activity. It was also an opportunity for the partners to get together, meet the newcomers and share some convivial moments!

The project combine the expertise of universities, research institutes and industrial partners, to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable aviation system by developing a European roadmap for research and innovation in the field of aircraft noise and emissions.

A number of high-level European experts who believe in PULSAR’s objective were invited to a specific workshop to define scenarios, supported by WP2 under the direction of the NLR. About forty participants met on 6 June to identify a panel of indicators, exploring the range of possible futures via three different scenarios (optimistic and pessimistic)

Thanks to the workshop great success – whose conclusions proved particularly fruitful for PULSAR’s work – the consortium is now looking to the next steps of the project with confidence! For more information, visit the PULSAR website.

PULSAR’s showcase at the Paris Air Show 2023

At the end of June, PULSAR was also under the spotlights thanks to its participation in the Paris Air Show, a major international event which bring together thousands of experts from the aeronautical industry.

In close cooperation with the European Commission’s Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA), the coordinator of PULSAR (ONERA) and the communication officer (ARC) presented the project during a session dedicated to airport issues (STARGATE, TULIPS and OLGA projects).

It reinforced PULSAR’s position at European level, including through the preparation of a brochure presenting an overview of European and national collaborative aeronautical research efforts on emissions and noise.
